We offer specialised minimally-invasive non-surgical disc procedures for separate diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. However these results may give you and your treating doctor better reason to occasionally consider spine surgery. These ca ncertainly reduce your need for spine surgery.
Who is eligible for disc procedures?
Patients who have persistent, severe, disabling pain for which other simpler treatments have been ineffective and for which they would like a more effective treatment are eligible. They will have an exclusion of painful spinal zygapophysial joints (by means of diagnostic nerve blocks where they have had definite or complete relief repeatedly), past operations, nerve scars or nerve entrapment, or medical conditions such as persistent nerve pain, widespread, or pelvic or abdominal pain.
